Former JTAA Player Joins Miami Dolphins
Local Cody Parkey joins Miami Dolphins as Kicker. In the attached article he talks about not getting overwhelmed in the moment on the field, “I go back in my mind to the Jupiter Community Park and kicking it at a light post. That’s all I’m trying to do: just hit it down the middle.”
